"What's more, Google's G Suite for Education has been widely adopted by many school districts."
No it hasn't. It's hardly used by anyone outside of a few school districts in the colonies. The link is to a 2 years old article, which says "Assuming the growth rate of 41% from 2010-2015 continues over the next five years" - which so far it hasn't.
Office 365 for education (free) has pretty much wiped the floor with Google Apps - and that was already the case back in 2015 too. See for instance http://www.bitglass.com/press-releases/bitglass-report-microsoft-office-365-surges-ahead-of-google-apps
